2008 Toyota Tacoma V6 4dr Double Cab 4WD 5.0 ft. SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


I test drove an F150 and a Sliverado. Best fit for me was a truck that I could drive to work, and to the compost or Home Depot on the weekends - I'm not in the trades. This is my third Toyota (previous was a 4X2 Hilux and an '03 4X4 Tundra - both were great). Pros - mileage, interior design (esp. leg room) and overall appeal. Good sized back seat for the kids. As much or more interior room as a Honda Civic. On the down side, the truck rides a bit like a truck. Ford and Chev both rode more smoothly. Also, box is pretty tiny, so consider getting the long bed. I went Toyota because, well, it's a Toyota. I'm getting quality and I don't like spending money at the auto shop. VERY happy.

Best Features

Leg room, interior space, cab design and layout, instuments and gauges. Toyota quality.

Worst Features

Small bed on short box, so consider the long bed. Also, not the smoothest ride compared to full sized trucks. You're occasionally reminded that you're driving a truck. But maybe the off road package (esp. shocks) makes it a bit stiffer. But definitely not bad. I wouldn't go without the TRD offroad
